On Friday 11th March 2011, a 8.9 magnitude earthquake and a huge tsunami hit northeast coast Japan.
At least 1,300 people were killed in the disaster.
A lot of people were hurt.
This s the strongest earthquake ever recorded in Japan and the 5th in the world.
Houses, buildings, vehicles, roads, farms and others were swept by the tsunami.
The disasters also caused fire and floods.
I am sad and sorry for the victims and their families.
